According to Saito (2007) ambience is a multi sensory experience that also explores the aesthetic appreciation for an object or place. Ambience can be made up of the time of day an activity is done and the conversations made while doing it, the feel of different textures and the smells that come from the doing.  

From my understanding ambience is to me the atmosphere of a place or environment it is best described as the ‘feel’ , character, tone, mood, impression and ‘vibe’ that is going on within. A place can vary between positive and negative ambience and this can be said for how the end product turns out of my activity.

I have not had the motivation to do anything with paper this week…. Perhaps it has something to do with the rain?? Yes that’s what it must be, but that’s ok because it is cold and I don’t like the cold, it doesn’t make a good time to do craft. The conditions need to be right, I don’t think I would want to make something when the mood wasn’t right otherwise I don’t thing that I would enjoy it..….
